Sunrise of Pleasanton Team Member Melissa

Melissa Malek, LVN

Executive Director

“I began my career in senior living in 1999 as a floor nurse in an assisted living community in Kirkland, WA. I knew right away that I had found my calling. Although I’ve worked in different positions and had various job titles through the years, my passion to serve seniors remains constant.

My job has given me the opportunity to wear many different hats: I love visiting and laughing with residents every day, leading a compassionate group of individuals to serve others, and helping seniors and their families find solutions to tough issues. Sunrise empowers me to truly live out the important mission of championing quality of life for all seniors. I am thankful to do what I love every day.

In my spare time, I love to travel and spend time with my family—including my husband and two young boys. We spend a lot of weekends watching the boys play baseball. We live in Brentwood, California.”

Harmony Venturelli

Business Office Coordinator

"In 2002, I joined the Sunrise family.  I began as a concierge, and since 2008, I have been a Business Office Coordinator.

My favorite part of my job is that I am able to show my passion and joy in the services I provide to our residents, team members, and families each day. Also, as a training leader, I enjoy being able to support other Business Office Coordinators in their role and offering support to communities when needed.

The best part of working for Sunrise is working side by side with dedicated team members who believe in the mission to champion the quality of life for our residents. I have grow personally and professionally ever since I joined the family here at Sunrise.

In my spare time, I enjoy the outdoors and going on hikes and walks with my yellow lab, Bentley. I also love spending quality time with my family and friends."
